Transforming growth factor beta type II receptor (TGFbeta-IIR) has been found to be altered in primary gastrointestinal carcinomas. So far relatively few facts are known about the expression of TGFbeta-IIR in primary gastric cancer. Therefore, in the present study, TGFbeta-IIR expression was analyzed in 130 primary gastric carcinomas and correlated with(More)
OBJECTIVE This study examined the prevalence of mental health conditions in cancer patients, the role of socioeconomic position in relation to that, and the use of professional mental health care. METHODS Prospective cohort with measurements at the beginning of inpatient treatment (baseline) and 3, 9, and 15 months after baseline using structured clinical(More)
In this study, microsatellite instability (MI) was investigated in 126 gastric carcinomas and correlated with clinicopathological features and prognosis; at least 5-10 microsatellite loci were analyzed. MI was identified in 56 (44.5%) of all investigated carcinomas, one locus being affected in 40 (31.7%) carcinomas, two loci being affected in 6 (4.8%)(More)
We investigated the impact of demographic and disease related factors on non-participation and dropout in a cluster-randomised behavioural trial in cancer patients with measurements taken between hospitalisation and 6 months thereafter. The percentages of non-participation and dropout were documented at each time point. Factors considered to be potentially(More)
